Revit, Don't forget your keyboard (tips)

All too often people forget what the keyboard can be used for when they are modeling. 

The arrow keys are often forgot about. These can be used to nudge objects, very useful when arranging a layout or text. These small adjustments do however depend on how you have your zoom set. Far away = big nudge, close up = minute nudge so not really appropriate if your looking for absolute coordinates. The "shift" key also increase the nudge distance. 

Below are a list of handy short-cuts. I've put a dash beside the ones I think all beginners should learn from the beginning:
